Ok... Awesome is not the right word here, but I just couldn't resist writing it because it sounded so well. ;-)
It's a really great movie, though. I don't know if it has all it takes to win an Oscar, but maybe it does, given the contemporary Iran crisis. I definitely enjoy based-on-a-true-story movies more than others!
In spite of my anger at the film industry, I though it was ok to pay 5 bucks to stream it in HD as opposed to 26 (for K & I) at the theater.
I wish I'd had time to see more Oscar nominated flicks (the only other one I saw -- and loved -- was Life of Pi), but I guess I'll enjoy watching get Academy Awards regardless of that. I think I want to see Lincoln & Zero Dark 30.
Ok... I guess I've made my commercial for today! :-)
P.S. most importantly I'm delighted we have a new tv & antenna so I can watch the oscars this year!
